Calling all nerds
Voice Of Victory is pretty much a special interest euphemeral film, as this is primarily details the assembly of a radio transmitter for war time usage. Although theres a bit of a good introduction, as they try to make plans to introduce this heavy radio to the war front, but then its all amateur electronics hour, as they go step by step how the radio is assembled. One of the more interesting bits about this actually, is when the radios are being tested for quality, theyre all examined by amateur HAM radio users! Yay1 Everyone gets involved in the war!

From HT-4 to BC-610 or Hallicrafters Goes To War
If your an owner of the hallicrafters HT-4 or the mitary version, BC-610 transmitter, this movie segment and part two provide a great overview. Shown are the roots of the model based in the HT-4 and how it was modified for military service. This model originally sold in the range of $600 - $700, rivaling the cost of a car
The popularity of the radio is signified by the 25,000 units produced by hallicrafters and other allied companies. Their effort was appreciated by both American and overseas armies during World War Two. Hearing of ham radio operators in Europe that obtained one is not unusual.
The movie was actually useful as an aid in repairing my BC-610. I saw how the chassis were handled and mated together. Good background information.
